Microneedling is a medical grade skincare treatment that makes small punctures in the skin to induce collagen production. The healing that takes place can reduce the appearance of acne scars, pigmentation issues, and smooth a rough texture. Since healing is taking place, master estheticians sometimes use platelet rich plasma to enhance this process. What is the difference between microneedling with PRP vs. without?
When you choose to add PRP to microneedling, the microneedling will push the platelet rich plasma deep into the skin. PRP is a component naturally present during the healing process and signals to your body that there is a wound that requires attention. Therefore, when your body senses this additional PRP, it will increase the blood flow, white blood cells, lymphocytes, and other necessary components for healing.
Whether or not you utilize PRP, microneedling is a powerful treatment that can benefit nearly any skincare routine. However, if you have more severe acne scarring or concerns, PRP may provide an additional level of healing that can make further enhancements to the skin. At a consultation, your master esthetician can determine whether PRP microneedling or traditional microneedling will best meet your goals.
